It’s actually the name of aĀ ukulele-like instrument & anĀ IndonesianĀ musical style which typically makes use of the keroncong (i.e. The soundĀ chrong-chrong-chrongĀ comes from this instrument).

The off-beat strums are often accentuated. The other ukulele named “cuk” is slightly larger & has nylon strings.

It’s known as Gurun Pasir BusungĀ šŸŖšŸŒµšŸ«in Indonesian language šŸ‡®šŸ‡©

Guess whatā“ā‰ļø

It’s naturally formed from its mining site originally. It was abandoned & then being a well known desert destination in this island šŸŒ“šŸ–šŸŒ“ for both local & foreign tourists šŸ‘¬šŸ‘­šŸ‘«

You will definitely love its clean white sandy landscapes šŸ˜šŸ¤©

2ļøāƒ£Ā Bintan Blue Oasis šŸ’¦šŸ’§
